It appears you generate all of your own content, but I wonder if you could license and use GPT3.5 to translate 3d/VR from Mario Kart to Zwift. There would be some remapping of x-axis logic, I imagine, but I’m sure your code is tight enough to abstrct the ride behaviors and just use the paths and landscape.
There might be a huge value add to your user base, and create a “buzz” in the industry.
For EX: Might be a fun POC/Dev Jam/Code challenge for your team to keep them fresh. And may not be too expesnive to license as it would provide synergy and cross pollination of marketing and sales for both orgs.
Yeah, unlikely to happen, though surprises do happen every now and then (anybody remember boost mode?). If you want something you can actually play, this one comes pretty close, albeit with a space-billiards-keirin look, and is currently in private beta (you can probably get an invite pretty easily):
Thanks applied. I think its just the tunnel and volcano imagery in Watopia that made me think it would not be too much of a stretch, then thought remapping with AI would automate a lot of the translation.
I’m sure its not a prority for everyone. I guess it might be easier and bigger market opportunity for Nintendo to integrate a smart trainer. My kids used to have some sort of bike integrated game and they loved it, but the software was very limited.
